Letter to the Editor

Great support

Dear editor:

I would like to express how impressed I am with the support the community has given the Rainy River District Festival of the Performing Arts.

Our talent show and bake sale fundraiser last week was very well-attended and the response the performers received from the audience was enthusiastic.

Girls can play

Dear editor:

“A boy told me I skated like a girl; I told him if he skated a little faster, he could, too!”

In December, the NHL hosted its first-ever outdoor women’s hockey classic and later the first National Women’s Hockey League all-star game took place in its inaugural season.

Missing home

Hey Mike:

Over the past few weeks, the town of Fort Frances has been on TV five or six times a day with that new Tim Hortons commercial.

And for those of us who now live in other parts of Canada, it sure makes us miss the little town of our origin.

Each and every location on that little clip is familiar to us and, yes, we are proud to have called that town our home.

Amazing blessing

Dear editor:

I am so proud of the Fort Frances Choraliers!

What absolutely fantastic performances they gave at Rainycrest, the New Beginnings Fellowship Church in Fort Frances, and at the Zion Lutheran Church in International Falls.

The balance of sound and the professionalism was second to none!

Go Lakers

Dear Mike:

Many Junior ‘A’ teams in Canada are privately-owned and financed.

The Fort Frances Lakers, for one, are a community-owned and operated team that depends on the community to operate.

Renew tradition

Dear editor:

Sports rivalry . . . does it exist locally? Apparently not in the eyes or thoughts of our local high school principal, Peggy Keffer.

She claims her administration, including the Muskie boys’ hockey coach and athletic director, do not want to play the International Falls Broncos due to the fact that someone may get hurt.

Souls danced

Dear editor:

The Christmas season can be said to be well underway in our house.

On Sunday, Dec. 5, the New Beginnings Church once again was filled with the voices of the Fort Frances Choraliers.

The concert was led off by the six members of the Fort Frances Youth Ensemble. Their awesome voices blended beautifully in the two pieces they sang.

Legacy trashed

Dear sir:

The recent tragic passing of Joyce Cunningham has been duly noted.

Joyce was the driving force in the community behind the new public library. Our community owes her a great debt of gratitude for her perseverance in overcoming so many obstacles.

What has not received as much attention was Joyce’s contribution to our public schools.
